Chapter 9: Catch Up and Ketsup

So the baptism last week was of a 11 year old boy who is the son of a less active. His name is Carlos and is soooo cool. At first he was really shy around us but now he´s a bit hyperactive. That´s okay, he´s super fun.

I gave two blessings this week in full spanish. That was crazy.

The rain began last P-day and the lightning was so loud it set off some car alarms in our area. The rain cleared up by the end of the week but all I can say is "It has begun" BUM BUM BUUUUUUUUUUM!

I cut my own hair this week (simple buzz cut) but it´s too short because I had my glasses off and mixed up the guard things. Hahaha, I look bald at a distance :P

Two of our investigators say that the church is true and I am super happy but neither came to church and I´m confused and a bit hurt. :(

I made french toast for my companion and I didn't burn it. :)

I´m playing the harmonica! This is a recording of me playing "We Thank Thee, O God, For a Prophet" on my harmonica.  James playing the harmonica

I love to run but the humidity is worse than the altitude in Utah and really hurts my lungs.

A promising investigator dropped us this week and didn´t really give us a reason why. Please pray for Rom├ín to open his heart back up.

I´m sorry, I´m at a new computer and the pictures are hard to download here so next week for my baptism photos.

This week I gained a strong testimony of the fact that if you are listening an open your mouth you will be filled with the words you need to say to the investigators and anyone. We were in a lesson and my companion looked at me and I had no idea what to say. When I opened my mouth to start, words just came and came and came. I can´t even remember exactly what I said but it seemed to help the people. I bear testimony that this promise, as well as all others in the holy Scriptures are true and can be applied today even thought many were written centuries before.

Thanks all,
Elder VanderMeyden
